    So I take it the answer is no, it doesn't matter if you use a pedal wrench or not? I'm just trying to learn and a lot of people said the park website is a pretty good authority.

    edit: oops, my fault. I got it mixed up, I just checked and it says never to use a cone wrench as a pedal wrench.

    Youre maybe more likely to scratch the cranks with a plain open end wrench but it hasnt been a problem. Pedal wrenches tend to be long levers, so that's nice.

    That makes more sense.

    When it comes to using a pedal wrench vs a crescent wrench, most pedal wrenches provide a little extra leverage - which helps when a pedal is really stuck.

    edit: I'm going to stop answering questions here and change the title to "Hey hairnet".

    OH, yeah, you'll waste your cone wrenches if you're gonna go popping pedals off with 'em.

    Scrod,

    Do you have any idea how these run in terms of size? I wear a 10-10.5 size shoe by the way. Thanks!

    I have no idea. I hate plastic clips.

    I'm sure hairnet will chime in any minute though. Maybe he'll know.

    Scrod, I've been thinking about upgrading my mark v pro recently and am currently torn right now. Im deciding whether I should get Omniums to replace the 130bcd andel cranks or if I should get a carbon fork for comfort.

    One thing with the carbon fork though is that the original mkvp fork has a 30mm rake and I havent been able to find a good one in the 100-175 price range. Any suggestions?

    Would I notice any difference with the 130bcd to 144bcd swap w/ stiffer cranks? Or would I need POWAR LEGZ to notice anything.

    Found an Alpina fork with 30mm on ebay. Now another question is... which would you perfer for an upgrade?

    30mm rake Alpina carbon fork (from a steel fork) or Omniums (from 130bcd andel cranks)

    Whoops. Wrong thread, sorry!

    Edit: Well, I guess I'll ask a question at least. Scrod, if you had to recommend a budget wheelset, what would it be? (I'm not not really into deep rims)

    As long as we're on the subject of cranks (kinda), I've been thinking about finally changing out my bent Miche set.

    What's your Honest Dude's Opinion on S300s? I'm sure the arms are stiff enough for a street bike, but how about chainring roundness, chainring bolts (steel, according to your site?), BB, etc. Also, what's installation like for those GXP jawns? I've never handled one before.

    Installation was suuuper easy for my omniums, as long as you have the right tools. Also my omnium chainring isn't super round which might relate to the s300 chainring not being super round but I'm not really sure.

    /still not scrod but also not hairnet

    Does "the right tools" entail any proprietary weird stuff? I've got a pretty good collection of hex keys and wrenches, as well as a couple BB tools for other types.

    well you need an allen, which I believe is around a 6. And the tool that installs the bottom bracket, which is the one thing you might not have

    You'll need an 8mm allen wrench and a Park Tool BBT-19 (or similar).

    S300s are perfectly stiff enough for everyday riding and the stock chainring on Angie's is very round. Chainring bolts are steel.

    Imagine this:

    We're all in an auditorium with you up on the stage and everyone standing up one at a time to ask you questions. As soon as one persons asks a question, someone else stands up and blurts out their version of the answer. You let it slide at first but it just keeps happening. Even though you ask politely for people to please refrain from answering questions directed toward you, the participants don't listen. Each time a question is asked, they just can't resist being heard first and sometimes they even begin bickering over whose answer is better. How long before you slip out the back door and go do something else?

    Muhuhahahaha. I don't think I've done it because I'm not knowledgeable enough about bykes yet. I hope I'm right. I'm one of the people sitting in the audience who's patiently waiting for the guy on stage to answer the question.

    Sadly, what Scrod described is the norm for how many political arenas around the world work. And you guessed it, they don't get **** done.

    As things are, it's more like a roundtable of maybe 10 people who were gonna be there anyway (didn't have to make room in their schedule for this) that have a trickle of people come in and ask questions of them from time to time. It's also video-taped and broadcast on Public Access TV.

    If the thread's getting to dilute for your taste you could always lock the thread, put a (PM your questions) on the end of the title, then when a good question comes in , unlock thread, Copy/Paste folks' questions and your responses, relock thread.
